The disk contains most (I think) of Suppe's famous overtures, etc. They're played with great enthusiasm by the Slovak State Philharmonic, and the acoustic is perfectly satisfactory.

Purchased for my brother who has a liking for classical music. Selected this CD because it contained overtures which he did not have on other CDs. Very pleased with the content and recommends this CD to others of similar music interests.

Well-recorded, jolly music 19 Jun 2006
By Erik Homenick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yet another Naxos jem. This collection of famous operetta overtures by Austrian composer Franz von Suppe is not only an exceptional value, but the music included is just plain fun.

While his complete operettas are rarely performed, much of the music Suppe wrote for them has become famous, in particular LIGHT CAVALRY (which we've all heard in countless cartoons) and POET AND PEASANT. Suppe's overtures brim with good humor and infectiously catchy tunes; I would challenge anyone not to be uplifted by this recording.

The over-all technical qualities of this album are excellent. Not only does the (very talented) Slovak State Philharmonic play with enthusiasm, but audiophiles will appreciate the roudy brashness of the sound.

excellent value 29 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is an excellent value [...]. The Slovak Philharmonic is quite good. Recording quality is very good. Many of these Suppe' pieces are hard to find. It you like the composer, you will like this recording. Suppe' wrote many operettas and Slovak Philharmonic has recorded several volumes of the Suppe' overtures. I plan to purchase more in the series.

An Enthusiastic Recommendation! 18 Feb 2011
By Southern Gal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'd heard a Suppe overture on the radio and loved it. Consequently, I had to have it. I am really enjoying this CD. It is very well done. As someone else said, it is a little gem. I cannot imagine anyone not being pulled into the music on this CD.

Good performance but dated sound 18 July 2013
By Kent Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The performances are well performed but the clarity of the recording leaves much to be desired. The slection is good and
the performances are lively and ehtusiastic without being overplayed.

By Gumby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
when i opened it the case was cracked in the middle but the cd itself was just so amazing there were at least 3 or 4 pieces that were very recognizable. the cracked piece was prob due to the morons in the p.o. so i replaced it with one of my empty
cd's just soo awsome this cd was really. if i could give it tens * i would have.
